text from the plate


"There were two of them brought over which Mr. Albin has figured as Cock and Hen; and he makes a Difference in his Description of them, tho I could (on viewing them narrowly) find no material Difference either in their Colours or Marks, they appearing so much the same to me, that I think they may be expressed by one Figure as well as by two."
